What a fascinating story! In fact, all the refurbished barges in our bike and boat tour inventory tell a story all their own. The Quo Vadis was originally built in 1939 at the boatyard in Bouwsluis at a length of 50 meters. In the 70's, in the shipyard Voruit in Zaandamit, it was extended to 55 meters and continued its life as a cargo ship, only to be shortened again in 2005, and converted into a passenger vessel. Now, years later, the Quo Vadis, navigates the waterways of Holland, Belgium, and Germany, writing a new history as a bike and boat vessel.
